  1. Hi Laurel - Jealousy could be spun out fairly easily ... into a horror story - cheers Hilary

    1. Fatal Attraction is an iconic example there. Thanks for coming by!

  2. Jealousy works well into pretty much any genre as a motive or murder, divorce in any setting or prompting someone to leave on an adventure.
    Discarded Darlings - Jean Davis, Speculative Fiction Writer, A to Z: Editing Fiction

  3. Jealously seems to always be present in life--and a good plot for any story
